Stephen McBean has shared a cover of Black Flag’s ‘Nervous Breakdown’, which opens his forthcoming Pink Mountaintops album Peacock Pools. Check out a video for the track below.
“Steven McDonald used to always play a disco version of that bassline to annoy [Black Flag co-founder] Keith Morris when they were sound-checking for OFF!, and it ended up fitting perfectly with the demo I’d made,” McBean said in a statement. Morris himself commented: “Great job taking a song that’s been beaten to death by numerous punker dunkers and turning it into your own song! BRAVO!!!!”
Pink Mountaintops announced Peacock Pools, their first album since 2014’s Get Back, last month, sharing a video for the single ‘Lights of the City’. The LP is out May 6 via ATO.
